Humberside Police crackdown on uninsured vehicles

Humberside Police are clamping down on uninsured and unlicensed drivers in East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.

Officers will be carrying out targeted stop checks of vehicles during February.

The force said about 32% of all vehicles seized by police were related to uninsured vehicles and unlicensed drivers.

About 1,249 vehicles were seized between May and November last year.

Insp Paul Sergeant said: "The aim of this campaign is to provide high visibility patrols in an attempt to remove illegal vehicles off the roads, thus making the roads in Humberside a safer place for people who live and travel here."

Humberside Police said it would also be clamping down on untaxed vehicles and motorists that do not have a current MOT certificate, as well as disqualified drivers who continue to drive illegally.
